Honeywell Introduces New Move Battery Expertise to Present Safer, Sturdy Resolution for Massive-Scale Renewable Power Storage | Duke Power

  • Non-flammable move battery to be subject examined at Duke Power’s Mount Holly, N.C. facility for large-scale deployment for various vitality storage options

  • Sustainable resolution makes use of wind and photo voltaic to cut back carbon emissions and decrease prices

DES PLAINES, Ailing., Oct. 26, 2021 – Honeywell (NASDAQ: HON) at present introduced a brand new move battery know-how that works with renewable technology sources corresponding to wind and photo voltaic to satisfy the demand for sustainable vitality storage. The brand new move battery makes use of a secure, non-flammable electrolyte that converts chemical vitality to electrical energy to retailer vitality for later use whereas assembly the environmental, longevity and security aims of utilities.

Honeywell’s new know-how delivers higher flexibility and prolonged length for utilities. The battery shops vitality that can be utilized when wind and photo voltaic are absent, within the occasion of energy outages and when energy grids are at capability. It might retailer and discharge electrical energy for as much as 12 hours, exceeding the length of lithium-ion batteries, which might solely discharge as much as 4 hours. The battery is designed with recyclable elements and doesn’t degrade over time. It maintains system efficiency, offering a dependable and cost-efficient system for 20 years.

The move battery know-how will likely be examined by Duke Power at its Rising Expertise and Innovation Heart in Mount Holly, N.C. The corporate has greater than a decade of expertise testing numerous battery chemistries and has deployed quite a few large-scale vitality storage initiatives throughout the nation.

Honeywell will ship a 400-kilowatt-hour (kWh) unit to Duke Power’s facility in Mount Holly in 2022. If the battery is deployed at scale, it’s going to cut back using Duke Power’s fossil-fuel energy vegetation by using photo voltaic and wind. These renewable technology sources are more and more value aggressive versus conventional fossil fuels and characterize over 70% of latest energy technology. Honeywell goals to deploy a utility-scale pilot venture of 60-megawatt-hours beginning in 2023.

“With this move battery, Honeywell has developed an modern vitality storage know-how to reply upcoming vitality storage wants past the present applied sciences out there in the marketplace,” stated Ben Owens, vice chairman and basic supervisor, Honeywell Sustainable Expertise Options. “As utilities and firms search cost-effective alternate options to coal-fired vegetation with long-duration vitality storage options, they’re switching to renewable vitality targets that work across the clock to cut back carbon emissions. By partnering with Duke, we are able to implement this innovate vitality storage know-how at scale and produce to market a revolutionary move battery to satisfy rising vitality storage calls for whereas aiding firms in assembly their carbon impartial targets.”

Duke Power is executing an aggressive clear vitality technique, with targets of a 50 % discount of carbon emissions versus 2005 ranges by 2030 and net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.

“Duke Power has adopted move battery know-how for numerous years and is within the developments Honeywell is pursuing,” stated Tom Fenimore, director, Good Grid Rising Expertise and Operations. “Our Rising Expertise and Innovation Heart is a perfect proving floor to check this know-how. Over the subsequent 5 years, Duke Power plans to put in nearly 400 megawatts of battery storage capability in our service territory. We’ve a eager curiosity in breakthrough applied sciences.”

Trade information states that the lengthy length vitality storage market will develop to $13.7B by 2030 and require 115 gigawatts (GW) of vitality storage to assist the implementation of wind and photo voltaic capability.

The Honeywell move battery can be mixed with Honeywell’s unified system for course of, enterprise and asset administration, Experion® PKS, and its enterprise efficiency administration resolution, Honeywell Forge, for distant monitoring. The mix of applied sciences and renewable vitality technology sources will present a whole built-in vitality storage resolution for utilities and impartial energy producers to satisfy net-zero carbon targets. The general system may also set up Honeywell as one of many first vertically built-in end-to-end vitality storage resolution suppliers from battery manufacturing to integration, controls, vitality administration programs and efficiency contracts.

Honeywell not too long ago dedicated to attain carbon neutrality in its operations and services by 2035. This dedication builds on the corporate’s observe file of sharply lowering the greenhouse gasoline depth of its operations and services in addition to its decades-long historical past of innovation to assist prospects meet their environmental and social targets. About half of Honeywell’s new product introduction analysis and growth funding is directed towards merchandise that enhance environmental and social outcomes for purchasers.
